will do.  Windows names those "start types" as "auto" and "demand".

There is no parameter to do so, that is to delete existing one
before start when it exists, without interaction on the console.
(I thought "-r" option introduced in 7.9.9 will do, but it does
not work so on Windows by my oversight)
But you can delete existing service with

 delegated -Fkill -Pxxxx

before you start new DeleGate.

Yes, I thought so too.  My first idea was introducing "-y" or "-n"
like fsck on Unix have, but it is not good when combination of "yes"
and "no" is necessary.  Anyway, I become aware that there is user who
needs it practically, not just for the view point of completeness
of specification.  At least it will be fixed not to do hang without
console, and "-r" will be applied on Win32, in the next release.
